My Teddy Bear

My teddy bear was getting old

I showed him to my dad.

The threads that made his mouth were gone.

My teddy looked so sad.

His round dark eyes were crooked

His button nose hung down.

It made me cry to look at him,

My teddy, soft and brown.

A jagged hole showed stuffing

Poking through a long one side.

And I hugged him oh, so gently,

So it wouldn't get more wide.

When daddy showed my mommy,

She fixed him up like new.

His button nose was tight now,

His mouth was smiling, too.

His eyes were side by side again

Just like they used to be.

And when I sat and talked to him,

He could look right back at me.

She pushed the stuffing in again

Then sewed the hole with thread.

And when I went to sleep last night,

He was with me in my bed.

You know that someone loves you

By the little things they do.

At times like this, it means much more

Than saying, "I love you."
